HC Deb 25 May 1897 vol 49 cc1257-8
MR. J. C. FLYNN (Cork, N.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Foreign Office has yet received information as to the nature of the communication addressed by Sir Philip Currie to Tewfik Pasha in respect to the recent massacre of Armenians at Tokat; if so, will he communicate it to the House; and whether Sir Philip Currie complained of the inactivity of the tribunal at Tokat appointed to try the Mussulmans implicated in the massacre, and also called the attention of the Porte to the non-execution of the sentences already passed?


We have not heard of the alleged representation or complaint made by Her Majesty's Ambassador at Constantinople in connection with the Tokat Commission; nor has a reply yet been received to a telegram of inquiry which was addressed to him on the subject.


asked whether the right lion. Gentleman could say whether the reply would be received on Thursday?


I really cannot say when the reply will be received, but I will communicate it to the hon. Gentleman or to the House as soon as it comes.

Forward to
